Bill to Protect Special Counsel Mueller Could Be a Litmus Test for Government Accountability and Transparency

Statement of Lisa Rosenberg, Executive Director, Open The Government

The Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act that is stalled in the Senate protects Mueller and the integrity of the investigation deserves full bipartisan support. OTG has previously supported legislation that safeguards the records related to the Mueller probe into the 2016 election and believes this bill could be a litmus test for Congress’s commitment to embracing transparency and protecting the people’s right to know the true outcome of the investigation.
